Nick Wammes Competing at World Championships
Bothwell’s Nick Wammes is competing this week with Team Canada at the the 2016 Junior Track World Championships in Monti Chiari, Italy.
Team Canada, consisting of 13 athletes, will compete in the cycling event from August 23 to 27.
Wammes and Team Canada participated in a pre-worlds camp at Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, Ontario from August 6 to 16, to prepare for the World Championships.
Wammes, a sprinter who has represented Canada before, won a National Championship in April at the same facility in Milton, becoming the Junior National Champion in the Keirin, and Team Sprint events, setting a new Canadian record in the Team Sprint.
